Prevention and Control of Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus in Athletic Teams Staphylococcus aureus (“staph”) is a common type of bacteria that is found on the skin and in the nose of healthy people. It can cause infections in wounds or other places in the body. Penicillin is a drug that was once commonly used to treat staph infections. In the last few decades, many
